Petty's Music Lives On
Tom Petty, 66, died but his music will live on forever. It was one week ago that Petty and the Heartbreakers wrapped up their extensive 40th anniversary tour with the last of three sold-out shows at Los Angeles' famed Hollywood Bowl. Here are 25 of the legendary rocker's greatest hits.
"Breakdown honey take me through the night/Breakdown now I'm standing here can't you see/Breakdown, it's alright"
"Oh yeah, all right/Take it easy baby/Make it last all night/ She was an American girl"
"Looks like I've been fooled again/Looks like I'm the fool again/I don't like it, I don't like it"
Anything That's Rock 'n' Roll
"Girl you better grab hold/Everybody's got to know/Anything that's rock and roll's fine/Anything that's rock and roll's fine"
Don't Do Me Like That
"Don't do me like that/Don't do me like that/What if I need you baby? Don't do me like that"
Even the Losers
"Baby even the losers/Get lucky sometimes/Even the losers/Keep a little bit of pride/They get lucky sometimes"
"The waiting is the hardest part/Every day you see one more card/You take it on faith, you take it to the heart/The waiting is the hardest part"
"Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby/Everybody has to fight to be free, you see"
Don't Come Around Here No More
"Stop walking down my street/Who do you expect to meet?/Whatever you're looking for/ Hey! Don't come around here no more"
Yer So Bad
"But not me baby, I've got you to save me/Oh yer so bad, best thing I ever had/In a world gone mad, yer so bad"
I Won't Back Down
"Well, I won't back down/No, I won't back down/You can stand me up at the gates of hell/But I won't back down"
"I wanna glide down over Mulholland/I wanna write her name in the sky/I'm gonna free fall out into nothin'/Gonna leave this world for awhile"
Runnin' Down a Dream
"Yeah runnin' down a dream/That never would come to me/Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads/Runnin' down a dream"
Learning to Fly
"I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings/Coming down is the hardest thing"
Love Is a Long Road
"Some things are hard to give up/Some things are hard to let go/Some things are never enough/I guess I only can hope/For maybe one more chance/To try and save my soul/But love is a long road/Yeah love is a long long road"
A Face in the Crowd
"Before all of this ever went down/In another place, another town/You were just a face in the crowd/You were just a face in the crowd/Out in the street walking around/A face in the crowd"
Mary Jane's Last Dance
"Last dance with Mary Jane/One more time to kill the pain/I feel summer creepin' in and I'm/Tired of this town again"
You Don't Know How It Feels
"But let me get to the point, let's roll another joint/And turn the radio loud, I'm too alone to be proud/You don't know how it feels/You don't know how it feels to be me"
Time to Move On
"It's time to move on, time to get going/What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing/But under my feet, baby, grass is growing/It's time to move on, it's time to get going"
Crawling Back to You
"I'm so tired of being tired/Sure as night will follow day/Most things I worry about/Never happen anyway/I keep crawling back to you/I keep crawling back to you"
"Moonlight on the interstate/She was 'cross the Georgia line/Looked out the window feeling great/Yeah, it had to come in time/And she said I'm never goin' back/She said at last I'm free/I wish ma could see me now, she'd be so proud of me"
Room at the Top
"I got a room at the top of the world tonight/I can see everything tonight/I got a room where everyone/Can have a drink and forget those things/That went wrong in their life"
"Square one, my slate is clear/Rest your head on me, my dear/It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears/Took a long time... to get back here"
"And it's hard to say/Who you are these days/But you run on anyway/Don't you baby?"
I Should Have Known It
"Go ahead baby/Take all I got/And it's over now ya see/It's the last time you're gonna hurt me/It's the last time you're gonna hurt me"
